    We feature over 130,000 albums (about 2 million tracks) in high resolution available for streaming and download. This is on top of the 40 million 16-bit/44-kHz full resolution cuts.

    As long as it isn't like cable TV where you have hundreds of channels, and there isn't anything worth watching.

    I like that these guys also sell what they stream, which is important when the network is down for some reason.

    It will be interesting to see how the pricing for high-res downloads compares to HDTracks. I also like that you can listen to an entire recording before purchase, unlike HDTracks snippet preview.

    Re: Qubuz in the USA is just around the corner.

    Iím interested, Tidal works but not jumping over joy with it as itís focus is not my first, second, third...choice

    Now that I now how to properly say itís name, Iíll get it and probably run both for a bit.

    Looking forward to hearing more at RMAF 2018.

    I run both.
    Tidal has some (but only a few) pop tracks not available via Qobuz.
    Qobuz (I have the hi-res subscription) is truly excellent for jazz, blues, world music and classical.
    In the future, I might choose to drop Tidal.

    Re: Qubuz in the USA is just around the corner.

    for those using quobuz with a stand-alone dac, how have you implemented streaming? also, how are you controlling quobuz streaming?

    i see there is audirvana+ integration, however, best i can tell there is and will be no roon integration. i also see quobuz integration with a variety of network players such as lumin, etc. however, i am just curious as to solutions others here have used for their stand-alone dac.

    finally, going on the sublime+ pricing in the UK, it would be twice the cost here in the US as tidal -- are you finding the quobuz hi-rez streaming experience worth this premium?

    I use my Auralic Aries G2.

    As for Roon: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/is-...8/510?u=drtone

    Pricing won't be a straight currency conversion from pounds.
